"Chocolate," set to the song of the same name by Giraffage, is a wondrous VR music experience created by Tyler Hurd and presented by Viacom NEXT. In this psychedelic cat-centric world, your hands transform into cannons that spray cute, colorful chrome kittens onto a circle of people performing a ritualistic dance just for you, their robot god. You shoot giant shock waves into the vast, liquid-like landscape while a herd of giant cat heads migrate in the distance, and a massive tribal chief cat celebrates by spraying champagne. Everything is shiny and glimmering, smooth and sexy, cute and strange, overwhelming and astonishing. Coming soon for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
